I am from Germany and just finished school. I’d like to become a concept artist at the film industry and I already asked several universities here in Germany which subject I should study to fulfil my dream, but none of them was able to help me.
Now I found this website and I really hope that somebody is able to give me some information because I’m going mad, thinking about the end of the application round next February.
Would Illustration or Animation be the best choice to study or generally Fine Arts or Visual Communication?
Or is there a course offered in the USA only for Concept Art or at least specialized for the artificial parts of filmmaking? I am asking, because there is no guarantee to be able to join the film industry only through studying illustration, right? Actually illustration concerns books in a more intensive way than films, doesn’t it?
You see, I have not the slightest idea of anything!
Please help me, if anyone has some facts about a career as a concept artist and how to become one of them.
Sorry, if the answers to my questions are posted on this website, I haven’t found them yet.
And sorry for my bad English!
